The Examination of the Normal Periphery of the Fundus
During the examination of the living eye it is not possible to proceed in the same manner as when examining an anatomical specimen. Since the view is limited, the individual structures of interest can neither be surveyed nor followed in a continuous way. First, orientation must be obtained, and hence the morphologically most striking structure must first be sought out. In this chapter a schematic survey of the picture of a normal fundus in the mirror of an indentation contact glass will be given (Fig. 36). Details will be discussed later in the chapter on variations.
